Water birds

Great Herons in the early morning, soaking in the sun

I visited Hans Suter Park in Corpus Christi last Sunday morning and took a lot of photos of birds there: great herons, laughing gulls, terns, stilts, cormorants, and pelicans. Snowy egrets and some others didn't make it into any shots, and my mother and I got there too late for the roseate spoonbills. I grew up taking all these guys for granted (except for the spoonbills, because everybody loves a pink bird), and it's sad to think that they're all at risk with this BP mess. Depressing, really.
